Canon XA10 Hire Overview

The Canon XA10 is available for hire and rental and as small camcorders and video cameras have always been popular with clients looking for lightweight and inconspicuous ways to capture video they have proven very popular especially with clients looking to film school events, and live performances when the operators have limited experiance but want to get great results

You will notice when you first see the Canon XA10 that its size is dominated by the two XLR inputs for audio on the top of the camcorder which hints at the professional features that have been packed into this prosumer camcorder including a 1/3 HD CMOS sensor allowing you to capture pure 1920×1080 HD footage

With an inbuilt hard drive and support for two SDHC cards you will have no worries about running out of storage just set the Video Camera to auto allowing you to get the best footage with no prior experience so if your new to filming then this video camera is a great choice and is often used by seasoned videographers when they need additional video cameras to record additional angles without being manned

The autofocus system employed uses face recognition and works well you can choose a face on the viewfinder and the camera will try and track that face using the clever autofocus system the only gripe here would be that the viewfinder is a little small however a bigger viewfinder would result in a bigger camcorder so a good compromise has been found the only other point we would note on the camcorder is the external mount for a microphone is set very close to the front of the Canon XA10 and if your using a long mic you will notice the microphone creeping into your shot and the use of a small external mic is needed especially for wide shots.

Fitted with a fixed 10x zoom lens the Canon XA10 produces very sharp results and works extremely well in low light conditions thanks to the clever sensor this camcorder uses. In summary hire or rent the Canon XA10  if you need a small camcorder that packs some pro features and is a breeze to use yet the resulting footage in a novices hands will be surprisingly effective.
